I don't know if this answer satisfies Craig but it doesn't satisfy  
me. Other specification such as SVG (and I'm sure other W3C  
specifications) add properties for their own needs (which I believe  
is useful since CSS should be extensible, or at least that was my  
understanding) and they can use these properties in CSS style sheets  
contained in text/css resources. Is the CSS WG hereby implying that  
properties in the general W3C property namespace but not in CSS  
specifications cannot occur in text/css documents (and perhaps that  
another media type should be used)? If so this is a serious  
coordination issue, and it is a pity that the CSS WG did not bring it  
up while reviewing the relevant specifications, several of which were  
published many years ago.
